Fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) is a derivation of Fiber-to-the-x, which is a generalization of the several configurations of optical fiber use in telecommunications hardware. In FTTP communication delivery, the fiber is run from the central dispersal center to the premise itself, rather than deploying the signals through a cable pole, etc. The speed of the connection depends on the size of the Passive Optical Network (PON). The speed of the broadband delivery could be as high as 100Mbps, but there are installation challenges to be met.
Companies replace copper cable wires with optical fiber in order to provide the highest-quality internet connection to their customers. It's expensive to make this change, but an FTTP infrastructure provides many attractive options to telecommunications vendors, such as enabling them to bundle voice, data, and video services into one package.
